No support for live TV yet. It works great with PVR-250 recorded shows....
quality is quite good. I haven't had any luck playing shows recorded from
firewire yet (mpeg-ts files) but I'm working on figuring out a way to transcode
them to compatible mpeg-ps files.
I agree with Paul's ratings on setup and use....in fact my 5 year old has had
to show me how the controls work on occasion.
